Where the Wagon Led, originally published in 1973, offers a vivid personal account of life on the Canadian prairies before the land was settled for farming.

Rich in detail and humour, these stories impart a deep respect and understanding for an environment that is at once frightening and fragile. A writer and artist, environmentalist and rancher, R. D. SYMONS was born in England in 1898 and came to Canada as a teenager to work on a ranch. In these stories, lovingly illustrated with more than seventy line drawings by the author, Symons tells of his initiation into the life of the cowboy.

Where the Wagon Led conveys a respect for the prairie and its creatures, and a profound sadness at the passing of horse-powered culture.
